So far, I’ve been happy with the second movie. I’m thinking that Peter Jackson has it figured out now. There’s no Liv Tyler. We haven’t had that many montages or slow motion close-ups of people crying. Gollum has been a pleasant surprise.
But here comes a black rider, this time riding a dragon of some sort, and I’m reminded of how badly I disliked the first movie. I have to remind myself to keep an open mind.
Minutes Watched: 2.0:50.52
